It's another packed schedule in Melbourne on Wednesday, with Grand Slam champions everywhere you look - Serena Williams, Novak Djokovic, Dominic Thiem, Naomi Osaka and Bianca Andreescu to name just five, and that's just in the singles.
We take a look at what to expect on Day 3 of the 2021 Australian Open.

‘She needs to be selfish!’ – Wilander tells Raducanu not to care what people think

Novak Djokovic - who Eurosport expert Mats Wilander thinks is getting better by the day - comes up against the USA's Frances Tiafoe, by no means an easy opponent, and indeed a former quarter-finalist in Melbourne.

Potential upset

Hsieh Su-wei is always a tricky opponent, and Canada's Bianca Andreescu - just returning to full fitness - will have plenty to think about as she starts the day on Rod Laver Arena. There could be fireworks.


The Brits are few and far between now in the singles, but there's always hope in the doubles. Heather Watson partners Leylah Fernandez of Canada as they take on Sam Stosur and Shuai Zhang in the first round of the women's doubles.
And another Brit will be out of the draw in the men's doubles - Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares face Cameron Norrie and Marcos Giron.
